      Empire Fri 13 Jul 1866
      THE LATE CITY CORONER - We announced with regret the death of Mr. John S. Parker, whose burial took place yesterday afternoon. Mr. Parker had been coroner for the city of Sydney since 1856, and first entered the public service so long ago as May, 1825. He died at his residence, Newtown, at about 9 o'clock on Tuesday evening, after a severe illness of nearly two months' duration. His death was quiet, and almost imperceptible. He had for days previously been quite aware of his true condition, and resigned himself at peace with all men, and with a lively hope of a better hereafter. Mr. Parker was a member of the Church of England; was a native of Cork, Ireland, and leaves a large family. Gastric fever is said to have been the cause of his death, but there can be no doubt that annoyances in reference to official matters, and aggravated by some difficulty he experienced in obtaining leave of absence to recruit his health, contributed to exasperate his complaint. He was a little over sixty years of age, and was naturally of a robust constitution. He had many friends, both in this and the neighbouring colonies, and in Ireland, by whom the sad intelligence of his death will be received with sincere sorrow.
